Description

Inspired by an initiative launched in German-speaking Switzerland, Ethnopoly in Meyrin is a life-sized ‘board’ game in which primary school pupils are invited to meet local residents, associations, services and retailers.The aims? To soak up cultural wealth, promote diversity and bring people together, in a commune that is home to more than 130 nationalities.

Representatives of CERN head to the Forum Meyrin to take part in the game, where they explain to the participants that 10 000 scientists of more than 100 different nationalities work together at the Laboratory to advance human knowledge. These scientists all share one common language: science!
